You have not included your model # with your question so i can only give you general things to try/replace when a dishwasher will not turn off.

1. The Timer or cylce selector for your dishwasher is defective - not turning off the pump when the cycle is over.

2. (most likely) Leak detect solonoid tripped or failed - There is a tray beneath the washer which catches any leaks.There is a float-switch in the tray which runs the pump continuously to empty the machine if a leak is detected.

3. the float is stuck in the "over filled" position or possible a bad float switch, if the float is stuck in the up or full position, the d/w will not fill with water and the drain motor will often run all the time.

For a more specific answer - you will need to use the "continue with this expert" option and reply with the Model Number and the 9-digit Product Number Code (PNC).
These can be found on the rating plate of your appliance.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

My AEG F55402Vi0P dishwasher pump runs continuously, whether is switched on or off, or whether is open or close. Please advise.


I likely has a flood proof circuit in the bottom. It is sensing water in the bottom pan an has gone into pump out thinking it is leaking. Check for water under the dishwasher in the pan bellow. If there is you will have to find where it is leaking from.

AEG 40850 - pump noise and running for long time, eventually showing error 20


There is a problem with drainage. Check the drain line connected to the disposal or peatrap. Make sure it is not plugged. Otherwise you can disconnect the drain line and put a wet vac on it to try to clear the hose

I have an AEG F55002ViOP dishwasher. It's making a strange grinding sound and showing error code 30. Can anyone advise how to solve this please.


Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.

If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Good luck.

Pump will not stop running


It is difficult to answer the question with so few symptoms. The question would be whether the pump stops when you open the door? If not, then should checked for correct door switch, otherwise I think you need to replace the main board. If you see diagram bellow you can see that the motor is driven by the triac which is probable remain in the open position and constantly power supply motor. Some model has relay which switch between wash motor and drain motor and there is possible that relay stuck and motor also running constantly.

What is the most usual reason for leakge on the AEG 6050?


The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified..

This sounds like the anti flood system has triggered. This does put the washer on a pump out mode and the outlet pump runs all the time. The trigger device is a polystireene slab in plastic bracket with miro switch at the bottom of the washer. Dry the bottom out and check for water leaks (hose clamp / hose) and this should solve the problem.

This seems like the anti flood system (polystireen float / micro switch) at the base of the washer is triggered,\. This puts the washer in pump out mode and stops inlet of water via the inlet solinoid. Dry the water on the base and then check for any water leaks. (pipe leak
